If there was anyone who "understood the assignment" at the 2022 Met Gala, it had to be Blake Lively.

She owned the Met Gala and rocked the "Gilded Age" theme this year in a transformational outfit.

Ryan Reynolds was the perfect dapper foil to Lively's old-world glamor, even if she did make his jaw drop for a few seconds.

When she arrived at the 2022 Met Gala red carpet, it seemed that Blake Lively was wearing a pastel pink and orange ensemble with a pink gold-pink bow.

he couple posed for a few pictures before Lively made her way to the stairs, where the gown's transformation began.

With the help of the Met Gala crew, Lively flipped the train revealing an aqua train that cascaded down behind her, and the gown transformed into something magical.

Since the dress was partly an ode to all that was New York, including the Statue of Liberty, it mimicked the way that copper oxidizes.

As the gown began to transform on the Met Gala steps, Reynolds had the sweetest reaction to it, as he smiled, cheered, and even looked in awe at his wife.

As he later wrote on Instagram, “Blake changing outfits in a split second on the red carpet was a moment I’ll never forget.”
